 Hey group - jumping in to Android to write some code (hobby mainly
but ...)
Can't tell if the TMobile mytouch is as development friendly as the
g1. Searched around but can't find any info. Android page only lists
g1. I need a phone for general use as well as coding and have to make
the move ASAP.
Thanks for any info, opinions, flames.
(sorry this is cross posted to another Android group - if that's bad I
will refrain in the future)

dev newb g1 vs mytouch

by Yusuf T. Mobile » Wed, 12 Aug 2009 06:47:01 GMT


 Hi AN, both phones are developer-friendly, the differences are:
- the G1 has a physical keyboard, which easier to use or test apps
that require lots of text entry, etc.
- in case it matters, you can modify the OS on the G1 with a little
hacking (Don't tell T-Mobile I said that. Thanks.)
- the MyTouch is faster and sleeker.

1. Time stamp in contacts.db

Hello Everyone,

Is there a way know all the contacts added/edited/deleted from the
contacts.db in a certain time interval?

I don't see any timestamp column in the people table and although the
timestamp is being populated into the voice_dialer_timestamp table(the last
TRIGGER does this) for some reason this timestamp is always written into the
row with _id=1..

The following is the output of '.schema people' on
/data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/contacts.db
__________________________________________

CREATE TABLE people (
_id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT,
_sync_account TEXT,
_sync_id TEXT,
_sync_time TEXT,
_sync_version TEXT,
_sync_local_id INTEGER,
_sync_dirty INTEGER NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
_sync_mark INTEGER,
name TEXT COLLATE LOCALIZED,
notes TEXT COLLATE LOCALIZED,
times_contacted INTEGER NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
last_time_contacted INTEGER,
starred INTEGER NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
primary_phone INTEGER REFERENCES phones(_id),
primary_organization INTEGER REFERENCES organizations(_id),
primary_email INTEGER REFERENCES contact_methods(_id),
photo_version TEXT,
custom_ringtone TEXT,
send_to_voicemail INTEGER);


CREATE INDEX peopleNameIndex ON people (name);

CREATE INDEX peopleSyncDirtyIndex ON people (_sync_dirty);

CREATE INDEX peopleSyncIdIndex ON people (_sync_id);


CREATE TRIGGER contact_cleanup DELETE ON people
BEGIN
    DELETE FROM peopleLookup WHERE source = old._id;
        DELETE FROM phones WHERE person = old._id;
    DELETE FROM contact_methods WHERE person = old._id;
    DELETE FROM organizations WHERE person = old._id;
    DELETE FROM groupmembership WHERE person = old._id;
    DELETE FROM extensions WHERE person = old._id;
END;

CREATE TRIGGER peopleDeleteAndPhotos DELETE ON people
BEGIN
   DELETE FROM photos WHERE person=OLD._id;
END;


CREATE TRIGGER peopleLookup_insert AFTER INSERT ON people
BEGIN
    SELECT _TOKENIZE('peopleLookup', new._id, new.name, ' ');
END;


CREATE TRIGGER peopleLookup_update UPDATE OF name ON people
BEGIN
    DELETE FROM peopleLookup WHERE source = new._id;
    SELECT _TOKENIZE('peopleLookup', new._id, new.name, ' ');
END;

CREATE TRIGGER people_timesContacted UPDATE OF last_time_contacted ON people
BEGIN UPDATE people SET times_contacted = (new.times_contacted + 1) WHERE
_id = new._id;END;

CREATE TRIGGER timestamp_trigger2 AFTER UPDATE OF name ON people BEGIN
UPDATE voice_dialer_timestamp SET timestamp=strftime('%s', 'now') WHERE
_id=1;END;
